When will I be strong enough to say the words that hide in my heart?
When will I be trusting enough to know that you’ll understand why,
When all the time I smile and I laugh I am crying deep underneath,
In the place where you crawl when your life feels too small and you’re bursting to breathe in the deep?

Why will I not rip my heart open wide and let words tumble out with no thought?
Why seal up my lips with the feel of the rage that I stupidly struggle to speak?
Why when I know that honesty only is all that you seek and would give,
Do I blanch when you ask why I’m wearing that mask when love’s light should be all that I keep?
